Who's really proud of their new toilet? Tell me about it.

Looks like the original toilet in my 64 Overlander has finally pooped out (sorry). Not sure what to replace it with. Would love to see some pics of what others have done!

Sealand Traveler with Elongated Bowl

I'll have to get you a picture...but I replaced mine with a CERAMIC Sealand Traveler, with the Elongated Bowl, like in a house, for greater room and comfort

It's great. I've never looked back. Far nicer than the plastic piece of junk that came OEM.

lotsaluck,

Decided to replace carpet around toilet so while it was out might as well upgrade to ceramic.

When the original Thetford Aqua Magic crapped out in my 99, I ordered a Dometic 310. The RV guy came with a Bravura, instead. Next time I won't let them get away with it. The excuse? The 'bolt pattern' is different, and it won't fit in your Airstream. I know differently now, however, and will do it myself next time. The Bravura is a very uncomfortable, by the way. Not suitable if your throne room is also your reading lounge, ha-ha!

Dometic 310

We too replaced our OEM toilet this summer with the Dometic 310. So far we really enjoy it. It is several inches higher which may interfere with opening and closing of the cabinet doors on some Airstreams. Flushes very nice, lots of pressure and the footprint is very small which makes it very easy to clean around. Bolted up to the original flange no problem. Purchased ours at the Good Sam Rally in Louisville after comparing several models.

When it became obvious that the toilet in our 64 Globetrotter would never flush again, we went in another direction, installing a composting toilet.

Nature's Head Composting Toilets - The environmentally sustainable waterless toilet for Your Boat, RV, Cabin, Big Rig, Barn, Workshop, or Yurt!

Ugly, but no black tank and I think easier to deal with than the bt, in my opinion. Whatever toilet we bought would have to fit in the airline fiberglass bathroom, and I wasn't having too much success finding something that worked with that... I want to replace it anyway.

Globie64... I was thinking of going that route, too. The other possibility for me, since my sweet, young trailer never goes anywhere (and probably never will), is to just put an outdoor toilet on my site. But if I do that, what in the world can I do with the old one? Put it to another use... hmmm.... planter?

Actually, there was another poster with a '64 and they were good about repairing their different fixtures, including making new seals etc for the existing toilet. They made it work again, I wish I had seen their post and tried to fix mine before turning it into a planter.
